Catalina to Port

Teaser about to pass Slacker

Teaser about to pass Slacker

Another tough drifting race, but with a few good moments as the above scene aboard the crewed boat Teaser. Nearly 20 boats started, about half finished. A great result as the wind completely shut down on the fleet as we were making our way down the backside of Catalina. There was some entertainment with the myriad dolphin and whale sighings. We even had 2 whales breaching, and one whale surfaced within 2 boat lengths of Slacker. A long night ensued, however as we chased our lights trying to find wind. Slacker finished at 7 am, taking 20 hours to sail 41 miles, correcting out to 2nd place. Congratulations to Janina! Mark Keller worked hard through the night to earn the win.
